Anybody else catch the phrase "pay top dollar" on the back of the H&P box? I understand it's used more as an idea and top credit doesn't sound quite right, but still a bit of a turn-off.

Perhaps, but just because a society moves beyond one form of technology to another doesn't mean the corresponding idioms or sayings are discarded.

We do still say "Hold your horses" after all.

I completely understand... it just seems like the theme and language of a game is a shiny veneer that attracts and holds people in a game, and you would want to take advantage of every opportunity to use the in-game vernacular. It's not a big deal, really; it just seems like a missed opportunity to strengthen the theme.

How do you know the phrase "pay top dollar" ISN'T in their vernacular?

You're right. They've probably got the Jersey Shore and everything. I wonder how the Android universe dealt with thier bath salts epidemic?
